#3, it's all slight of hand, material management, and misdirection. It's not actually impressive if you know more than a handful of magic tricks. You'll notice how often he rests his hands on the table top- he's rolling the bearings around with them. The large ones he puts in the cups by briefly putting the cups under the table edge and "loading" them. The huge one at the end he pulls from under the table with his left hand and makes it look like it came from the cup by "flipping" it. Nice magic, but a shame that having a video camera on it ruins it for anyone who knows a few tricks and reviews.
